Donald Freedman, Elder law Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have been familiar with Mr. Crabtree's work, particularly in the special education area, for over thirty years. His knowledge of the law and his advocacy skills, both at the trial and appellate levels, are of the highest in the field. But what has also always impressed me about him is his empathy, his sensitivity to the needs of children with special needs and their families, and his awareness of the limits of the legal process as applied to the delicate relationship of teacher and student. He is the ultimate counselor, as well as advocate.
